Steen Neuchs Vedel, CEO of Vestforbrænding, receives the Global Goals Award.
With reference to the HaloSep process, the Danish company Vestforbrænding yesterday won the “Global Goals Award” presented by the Danish Waste Management Association. HaloSep is the first process in the world to clean and recycle the environmentally hazardous flu gas cleaning residues, fly ash and scrubber liquid from waste incineration. Through the Swedish company HaloSep AB, the process is now offered on the international market.
¬“This makes me proud and happy,” says Staffan Svensson, President of HaloSep AB. “That Vestforbrænding is receiving this award confirms what we already knew; HaloSep makes a real difference in the society. The HaloSep process contributes to making waste incineration more circular and sustainable. This is a clear benefit for any city or municipality that relies on incinerating, for example, household waste to generate electricity and district heating for its citizens.”
“The plant is now in its final test period, which ends in April. We see that the processes are working fully in accordance with expectations. We also see significant environmental and climate benefits, such as local management of fly ash, reduced transport and CO2 emissions. In addition, we see economic benefits and opportunities. This is what I call a win-win solution, says Steen Neuchs Vedel,” CEO of Vestforbrænding.
